Eddie was born in Carrollton, but grew up in Odessa, Texas, where she graduated from Odessa High School. Not long after high school, she met the love of her life, Weldon Wallace. They married in Loving, New Mexico on March 19, 1955. Sometime later, she attended Draughn’s Business College in Lubbock, Texas during the time that Weldon served in the military. During her career she spent time working at E Systems and East Texas State University. Her time at ETSU as a computer operator spanned almost 30 years.
Eddie had many varied interests. She was very active in her local chapter of the Eastern Star, holding the position of Past Worthy Matron, which is quite an honor. She enjoyed shopping, watching movies of all genres, as well as reading all types of novels. She especially enjoyed Danielle Steele novels. Eddie was particularly known for her delicious pecan pies!
Eddie is survived by her loving husband of 62 years, Weldon; her son, John Wallace; brother, John Carruth; granddaughter, Lauren Wallace; nieces, Cynthia Carruth, Caron Clinkskales, Cathey Edmonds, Stacy Johnson and Stefanie Cole and nephew, Craig Carruth.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Thomas and Gladys Carruth.
